Folbic Overview

Folic acid or folate is a B vitamin. It is also referred to as vitamin M,[4] vitamin B9,[5] vitamin Bc[6] (or folacin), pteroyl-L-glutamic acid, and pteroyl-L-glutamate.[7] Food supplement manufacturers often use the term folate for something different from "pure" folic acid: in chemistry, folate refers to the deprotonated ion, and folic acid to the neutral molecule—which both coexist in water. The International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry and the International Union of Biochemi...

Folbic Tab Brenckrdg an oval pill pink with b384 on it . Will it help with memory ? also how long can you take this pill? ## Hi Betty. The Folbic tablets contain Cyanocobalamin (Vitamin B12) 2 mg + Folic Acid 2.5 mg + Pyridoxine (Vitamin B6) 25 mg - in other words, they are a B vitamin supplement. Vitamin B6 is thought to have a number of therapeutic benefits, including improved memory. "A double-blind, placebo controlled study found that memory improved in elderly men that supplemented with pyridoxine, according to the Linus Pauling Institute. However, more research is needed to determine if pyridoxine improves cognition in unimpaired individuals." [1] With that said, you should be able to continue taking this supplement as long as your doctor continues to say it is okay becaus...

I read 'Parkinsons Disease treatment guide for physicians' by Dr. J. Eric Ahlskog.He discusses use of the following:Folic acid 2.5 mg(I would prefer L-methyfolate), B6 25 mg ,B12 1 or 2 mg. I have the MTHFR mutation: compound heterozygosity c.665C.>T?1268A>C. This defect may lead to early arteriosclerotic vascular disease or venous thrombosis and toxicity from medications affecting folate metabolism. I have a homocysteine level on the high side of normal(three times the low level). This doctor gives his patients this vitamin combo because levodopa can cause high elevation of homocysteine is associated with the above diseases. Has anyone been prescribed this combo for PD by their neurologist or cardiologist? Which generic brand of Folbic or the others in this group contains

Please advise me as to whether folbic is the sane as foltx. I have C.A.D. and I have been prescribed foltx but have been given folbic. ## Yep, they are the same thing, Foltx is just a Brand name I believe, and folbic is the generic name ## SAME THING, 2 DIFF BRANDS, FOLIC ACID 2.5MG, B6 25 MG, B12 2 MG ## It is very common for the pharmacy to give you a generic, cheaper version of the prescription unless you, or your doctor say it must be the name brand. ## TOOK METANX AFTER 3 DAYS HAD STOMACH CRAMPS DOCTOR RECOMMENDED FLOTX WENT TO PHARMACY THEY SAID I COULD TAKE B COMPLEX WITH FOLIC ACID MAYBE A GOOD IDEA?? ## Folbic and Foltx had minor differences and substituting one for the other used to be no problem. Now the new reformulated Foltx has L-methylfolate instead of folic acid. L-Methy...

Folbic for memory help

Does folbic help with memory loss? My mom has taken it for two weeks and no improvement yet ?? ## Hello, Steph! How are you and your mom? The FDA classifies this as just a multivitamin, so the only way it would help was if the memory loss was due to a deficiency in one of the vital nutrients it contains, such as the B12, which is known to help with cognitive function. Its only known typical side effects is nausea, due to its potency. Has this been prescribed for her?

Folbic; Vite-Vert Forte

Wife uses Folbic and has for several years (colonectomy). I am retired and have been forced to change insurance. New insurance (AARP Medicare Rx) forces me to use selected pharmacies (for us Walgreens). Walgreens doesn't have Folbic and forced me to buy Vite-Virt Forte for 73.17 (90 Tabs). I think this is a lot more than I paid for Folbic. Can anyone else validate this? ## I am also a Walgreens customer and was told Folbic was no longer available. I was changed to Vert-Vite, but seem to be having an allergic reaction. It also seemed to be more expensive. Can anyone verify if Folbic is still available somewhere besides Walgreens? Thank you! ## From my findings there don't appear to be any official announcements stating that Folbic is off the market. However, a drug monograph by N...

Since this is basically a vitamin, what over the counter product would be as effective? ## Hello, Jim! How are you? Since Folbic is classified by the FDA as a very potent prescription multivitamin, there is nothing available over the counter that is as potent, that's why it's prescription only. The best thing to do would be to speak to your doctor and see if there is something close that you can take that may help you. Getting to much of some nutrients can be dangerous, but there are others where it doesn't matter. Potent multivitamins may also cause nausea, after taking them. Are you low in anything in particular? ## Thanks for the reply. Actually it is for my wife. Her blood dr prescribed this and we are on ss making it a hardship paying for meds that insurance will not co...

Foltx and MTHFR

Help!! I have been taking vit B supplements but the hematologist said my body can't metabolize regular supplements b/c I have one strand of dna with MTHFR mutation. He said I need Foltx b/c my body can metabolize that type of vit B. What is the difference? it is expensive?! ## From what I've researched, Foltx reportedly contains the following B vitamins: Folacin + Cyanocobalamin + Pyridoxine In terms of differences: - Folacin is just another name for folic acid / folate / vitamin B9 - Cyanocobalamin is actually a cheaper synthetic inactive version of vitamin B12 made in a laboratory. By comparison, Hydroxocobalamin is another inactive form of B12, and Methylcobalamin is the only naturally occurring biologically active version of B12. - Pyridoxine is just another name for vitamin...

Anthem pathway is not covering Folbic. What can I get instead? ## Hello, Meatbe! How are you? Folbic is just a potent multivitamin, there are various others available, so you should just ask your doctor to prescribe an alternative that your insurance will cover, or that is available as a generic. The FDA information shows that some people experience nausea, after taking this, due to how potent they are. Is there anything else I can help with?
